'The Host' -- 1 star

<b>PG-13; 2:05 running time</b><br><br>"The Host" is for people who couldn't handle the whirlwind pace of events in the "Twilight" trilogy and who prefer a love triangle unafraid to redefine, for a new generation, the word "lollygag."

It features several shots of Diane Kruger (as a capital-S Seeker alien, middle-managing the takeover of Earth) standing around in the desert, next to her shiny alien sports car of the near future, waiting around for a stray human to show up and make her day. The film may as well be titled "Stephenie Meyer's Waiting Around." -- Michael Phillips<br><br><a href=http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/movies/sc-mov-0326-host-20130328,0,1440588.column>Read the full "The Host" movie review</a>
